Making Ad work with NetWare 6.5 DNS



Hi all.

We have NetWare 6.5 DNS servers and are forced to use
We cannot seem to get our first AD DC registered
correctly with the DNS.

According to Novell, our DNS is setup correctly to allow
updates etc.

It seems that the DC registers it's A record, but cannot
register the SRV records.

When the server was installed we only had NetWare 6.0 DNS
servers that were not the correct BIND version. Now we
do, but I am unsure if the DC is just not trying to
register these records based on old information.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Does the Netware DNS support both Dynamic Updates and SRV Records?

If the answer to either of these is 'NO' then it is not going to work.




Yes it does and that is why I'm asking if anyone has any
tips to get it to work, and also if there is something
that can be done on the DC to force it to create the SRV
records in DNS.
